After contributing to the firing of an Obamacare telephone operator, Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity has reached out to help the woman. Not only did he gift the operator, Earlene Davis, a year’s salary, he has offered to help her find another job.

It’s no secret by now that the Healthcare Marketplace website has been pretty glitchy. In fact, there have been so many complaints about it that President Barack Obama announced a toll-free number earlier this week for people to call to submit an application. Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity decided to put the hotline number to the test on Monday.

When Hannity eventually reached Davis, the Obamacare hotline operator, he told her who he was and that she was live, and she agreed to talk with him. The host talked to Davis for about 10 minutes and asked her some questions about signing up for Obamacare, politics and the weather in her home state. Unfortunately for Davis, she was let go after she spoke with Hannity.

After Davis finished her conversation with Hannity, she says she was escorted to Human Resources and was told she was being fired. “I remember her saying, ‘We can’t have this type of stuff going on here, so we have to release you.’ They said no contact with the media. No type of media whatsoever. We’re not allowed to do that at that company,” the mother of two said.

While Davis could have certainly refused to talk to Hannity when he called in, Hannity felt pretty bad about playing a role in Davis’s firing. Hannity had Davis on his show on Thursday and apologized to her and offered to gift her a year’s salary tax-free–$25,000.

“First of all, I’m very sorry that you had to go through that. Especially because you were really nice, you were very kind, you were very honest, and I don’t want you to have to pay a price just for taking our phone call and their being punitive in some way, so I want to help you out here,” Hannity told Davis and then offered her the money.

Davis was very grateful for Hannity’s offer. “I thank God for you and your crew and everybody that’s listening,” she said. “This is really a blessing, I wasn’t expecting all of this.” Hannity has also offered to help Davis find another job.

Some Twitter users are giving Sean Hannity a lot of praise for helping out Davis financially after she was fired. What do you think of Hannity’s gift? Respond below.

      I love it when republitards get mad about something but can’t point out exactly what their mad about and rant like morons. This is a good write up other then it didn’t point out that Richie rich here is giving her what would be like dropping a quarter in a homeless persons cup for the rest of us. Good guy, good deed? Yeah right, nothing admirable about this.

      • Bob G

        nor is there anything admirable about forcing unaffordable Health care down your throat,moron Oh, btw your hero rants more than any other president in history

    About time someone from that network does a good dead. I got mad respect for him now.

  • Funny

    There are those that believe what party you belong to matters. In this day and age, it doesn’t. All politicians are the same and their goal is to divide you. When the masses are divided, change does not happen and that keeps all politicians in power.

    If you realistically look Obama, he is nothing more than an extension of Bush. Nothing really has changed. About the only thing new is Obamacare (which by the way is needed). Other than that, everything has remained the same. We over spend on the military, we are constantly at war, we are extending our imperialism, we are off shoring out jobs, we are continuing to become a police state, we are expanding the patriot acts, etc. We also are experiencing a massive decline in the family unit, the dumbing down of our entire society, and the destruction of the middle class.

    None of these things bode well for our country. Face it America, we look exactly like two countries of the past: Ancient Rome before it fell and Pre-World War II Germany.

    All of these things have occurred on the Democrat, Republican, and Tea Party watch. Don’t you get it? Those in power do not care about you because they are not one of you. They have none of your problems, worries, or concerns. Their kids don’t die in wars, but yours do. They have no problems finding work, paying bills, feeding their families, but you do.

    Did the folks at the help desk hear about this on the air or is NSA tapping Hannity’e phone?

  • Nick

    Sean Hannity is the scum of the Earth…he gets that woman fired and I guess he couldn’t sleep and invited her to the show so he could show what a great man he is…I bet the show producers had a talk with him and persuaded him to do this…How would he like to get fired for taking a phone call? Hopefully she gets a job, they are hard to get nowadays with benefits and everything…

    • Bob G

      You are a complete a*****e If you listened to the original call, Hannity gave her a chance to get off the phone If she wanted. She wasn’t forced to do anything like sign up for health care at an
      unffordable rate.
      When did your hero Obama ever do such a thing? Where do you idiots get your common sense from?

    • joe

      Nick your wrong. Hannity offered to help her on the phone call so no one forced him to do anything. Further he got her a new job that pays better. He promised that on the call, live on the air and told her who to contact if there was retribution. She is a lot better off now.

    • http://yahoo the para

      Yes she has a new job full benefits and more pay so the lady is better off than she was happy for her

  • whitney

    Sean did the right thing.

  • William

    Sean did the right thing. Everyone wins; even a partisan should be able to admit that.

  • J K Pratt

    Hannity did the right thing . . . I am glad that he will also help her find a job. We need more people like her in this world.
